Coaching is a professional learning and developmental tool that can help people acquire the skills, knowledge and capability to enhance their job performance. It can also benefit an organisation by creating a more motivated workforce with improved skills.
Best practice requires managers and leaders NOT to coach their direct reports. Organisations either contract external coaches or train their own internal resource – who will then coach across departmental lines.
Professional coaches will be adequately trained. The only truly global organisation /professional association for coaches is the ICF - International Coach Federation.
To register and offer services as a Coach in the HRINZ Coaches Directory requires applicants to be a member of HRINZ (and ideally a Professional Member of the ICF).
The purpose of providing a Coaches Directory is to assist members and their organisations, looking for external coaches who can provide career development or corporate training.
